Game Boy Advance SP IPS LCD
Simply fantastic, takes a bit of modding to fit (even more than what is in retro modding's tutorial) but this screen just so great it's completely worth it.
The screen itself looks fantastic. A huge upgrade from the old frontlit screen that was in the console originally. The only complaint I have is the fact that the glass lens doesn't have the holographic text beneath the screen. I understand that it's probably a licensing issue, which is why I am giving the part 5 stars and not 4.
As far as actual installation goes, it was fairly difficult for me to modify the original shell to make room for the new screen. I am fairly experienced with the type of work necessary for this mod, and it was moderately challenging. If this is your first mod, I'd recommend extreme caution with the shell cutting and soldering. It's not impossible, but it will be difficult for someone with no experience.

I am fairly new to the modding business and this was a pretty easy mod. The only shell modification I had to do was minimal and would be easier if you buy a precut shell. The display just drops in and I love the option to solder the controls for the lighting. Compared to the original AGS 001 screen it is literally night and day. The screen is so much brighter and so crisp, definitely worth the money. If you plan to play your gamebody advance games at all, I highly recommend putting money into this mod.
